About Rent My Island

We fell in love with the Florida Keys back in the 1980's when we took our first trip there. We toured the Keys from the water in a catamaran. We bought our first place there shortly after. We love owning all these properties in the Keys because it gives us a reason to come down from Wisconsin a couple times a year. We are looking to retire to the Keys someday.

Rent My Island purchased this house in 2005

Why Rent My Island chose Marathon

We purchased two side by side 4 bedroom homes on the Gulf of Mexico with a beautiful view and room for us to bring family and friends.

What makes this house unique

These homes have 100' Docks and beautiful views. We have added swimming pools, kayaks and sandy shorelines.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We all had a really great time. There was myself, wife and 2 teenage sons, my friend, his wife, and his teenage son and daughter. The 4 bedroom house was plenty big enough for all of us. I think the open concept of the living room/dining room/kitchen really helped it NOT feel crowded. The kids loved the pool, the kayaks and fishing from the dock when they weren't playing video games. The wives enjoyed sunning on the beach and cooling off in the pool. Us guys were able to catch several types of fish from the dock including barracuda, nurse shark, a small tarpon, grunts, and a couple fish that we didn't know what they were. We seen an octopus 'walk' past the dock, and seen sting ray, crab, lobster and a manatee near the dock. Jim told us to hang a chum bag in the water from the dock and the fish would come to us. They really did. I recommend doing it when the tide is a little calmer for more success.



As far as sight seeing, the beaches (Sombrero Beach, Bahia Honda State Park, Coco Plum) are all great. The key Deer are everywhere at dusk in Big Pine near the 'No Name Pub' on 'No Name Key' and also on 'Key Deer Road' past 'The Blue Hole'. Key West's Mallory Square is also amazing the hour or so before sunset. The area at the waters edge looks totally abandoned during the day, but near sunset, it completely springs to life with performers doing incredible shows and vendors with unique items. After sunset, it dies as fast as it started. Duval Street is the place to be after that. Theater of the Sea in Islamorada, the Dolphin Research Center in Marathon and the Turtle Hospital in Marathon are all places to check out for a few hours to half a day each. For fishing, I recommend a day out with Diego Cordova (http://floridakeysflats.com/) or a half day out with Sea Dog Charters. Don't forget to feed the Tarpon at Robbies in Islamorada.



We spent about as much time out sightseeing as we spent at the house. It was a terrific time all around. Our only complaint was that we ran out of gas for the grill, but Jim had a new tank to us faster than we could have ordered pizza. We are coming back!!!

Awesome vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for a much needed vacation. Although we drove here, flying in would be no problem as you really only need your clothes and a stop at the grocery store. Everything else is provided for a perfect vacation. The house was clean and the staff was helpful above and beyond our expectations. We spent a lot of time on the water and touring the areas surrounding Marathon. The sights, wildlife and marine life nearby were beautiful and exotic. Fishing was great as well. I have never been to the Keys and this experience has me wanting to retire here, totally relaxing and new exciting things to experience at every turn. Laurie Valentine

Great place to relax and enjoy the Keys

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the 4 bedroom house on Vaca Cut was an absolute pleasure. The property was clean and well maintained. Everyone we dealt with from the property was helpful and courteous beyond expectations. Our boat was clean and easy to operate. Although we had little experience fishing in the area, we did outstanding with a little advise from some locals that were willing to steer us in the right direction. We had more than enough to eat and bring plenty of fillets home. We saw dolphins, sea turtles, key deer and plenty of interesting sea life both near the property as well as on our excursions in the surrounding area. I wish we would have had longer to spend as there is so much to see and do that one week just flew by. I guess that's just another reason to come back. We have been telling everyone about this gem of a vacation spot. Thanks for the best vacation I have been on in a long time. John Riegel

Family Vaca

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home August 2013. Lobster season had just begun. We had one toddler and a puppy along with 7 adults. We were perfectly comfortable. The bedrooms were comfy. Three are incredibly large, one is smaller with the bathroom in the hall. One bedroom has outdoor access. The kitchen has everything you'll need. The living room is small but right off the water and there was never an issue about space. There is an alarm on the door so if your small child opens it, you'll know immediately. Good safety feature for people with little ones. We turned it off when we were all together and our son was well supervised. The deck is great, very peaceful. Goes way out into the water and feels private. We took the kayaks out and had a great time looking in at the other homes along the water. Really a great place. We'd definitely rent there again.

Access to Gulf or Atlantic IN STYLE!

  • 5 of 5

This spot is hard to beat! Right on Vaca Cut, it is great access to both Gulf and Atlantic. All amenities with the best sunset view in Marathon! Room for all the family and any visiting friends. We hated to leave--back to reality, but with the knowledge that this place is now a family favorite.

Great house for a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time both in the Keys and relaxing at the house. We loved the pool, catching fish at the dock, grilling out and sightseeing. Jim, the manager was very helpful. We are coming back this fall.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This property is wonderful! We enjoyed our vacation very much. We went with a group of four guys and had a lot of fun fishing off the dock, relaxing by the pool and grilling fresh seafood on the grill. We alreay plan on returning to this property and will be recommending it to family and friends.
